Humanity is doomed. At least, that’s the meme we hear too often these days all thanks to technology gone amok and technologists preying on human weaknesses and tendencies toward addiction because dopamine.
That’s the premise. Where does Apple fit in?
Apple can be considered the cause of the smartphone revolution that has swept across humanity, and even company shareholders are asking the iPhone maker to do more to help the species. Alas, even Steve Jobs, who brought the iPhone addiction to mankind, would not have been able to save earthlings from themselves.
Smartphone addiction is not Apple’s problem to solve because humanity. Apple can do more to help us save ourselves from human addictions.
It may be true that you can’t fix stupid, but crosswalks and speed limits are there for a good reason.
